I was actually almost done with this block when I took the picture of the other one, so I'm not as fast as it may seem. This one has been done for a while, just hadn't done the "photo op" of it.
I know the last time I talked about it, I mentioned a stitch count error on Snow Queen. There is definitely a stitch count error on the individual pattern (it's 49 across, not 50, and one of the blocks is only 9 stitches across). I e-mailed Lizzie Kate, but no one got back to me. The good news is that the overall layout if you're combining all of them is laid out correctly - they only allowed 49 stitches across for that block, so no adjustment was needed.
Thanks for checking out my blog!
Next up - maybe in a week or so (Martin Luther King Day? Valentines Day? LOL) I will have another page of my Chicago HAED.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years.....I am looking forward to 2013! I actually got some stitchy gifts from my Dad - we draw names for Christmas (way too many people in our family!) and he got my name. He gave me a Dimensions kit that is similar in style to one I stitched before (it's a winter scene), another funny one that says "If it's true a woman's work is never done, why bother starting", and one of the British cross stitch magazines. When he asked me if I had any suggestions, I had just said a gift card, but he didn't want to take the easy way out. I like what he picked out!
